This was alleged for the past seventy years, that one family in Europe was responsible at the root for most of the compromises of security in the Western world. Ironically, when James Jesus Angleton suggested this at the CIA he was laughed to scorn. He frequently told his confidants that the real intelligence breaches were being masterminded by this old family in Europe. Everybody said, "Angleton has truly lost his mind. Time for the old fossil to retire. Now he is talking conspiracy buff gibberish that is going to get him committed."
Angleton believed that the Freemasons were controlling the intelligence apparatus of both countries and for this reason he never trusted anybody again no matter how highly placed they were in either nation. At one point Angleton told his superiors he would only report to the President himself and then warned them that future Presidents would be plants who were being groomed at that time for the office. Angleton brought forward the long stay of Bill Clinton in Russia as an example of this training program that was getting candidates ready for office up to twenty years in advance. Not long after he was put out to pasture and widely considered to be a once remarkable agent who had gone off the deep end.
In retrospect, James Jesus Angleton was the one and only person who ever worked at the CIA who figured out what was really going on in the world. In terms of competency, Angleton was the best and the brightest person who ever worked there.
